Print edition cover

The skies in Dublin Bay always feel enormous and exhilarating and there is always a great selection of clouds. A friend’s dad told him as a child that the Poolbeg chimneys were cloud makers and that has always stuck in my head. This illustration is a nod to that lovely white lie.

I’m an illustrator, artist, and children’s picture book author from Dublin. Most recently, I have become a cloud hunter.

My books include the Lonely Beast series, Danger is Everywhere with David O’Doherty, and most recently Eggcorns which was published in October this year. I am currently working on a project called A Daily Cloud where I draw a new character every day and post them on Twitter and Instagram to brighten your feed every morning.
